ChemiScreen™ alpha2A Adrenergic Receptor Stable Cell Line

The ChemiScreen™ α2A Adrenergic Receptor Stable Cell Line measures ADRA2A (GPCR) activation via an increase in intracellular calcium. This cell line ships as two vials of cryopreserved cells.

Catalog #: HTS096C Size: 2 vials
Biological Information
Background Information:
The ChemiScreen™ α2A Adrenergic Receptor Stable Cell Line is an engineered cell line for use in studying drug candidates (small molecules or biologics) targeting GPCRs. This cell line enables assessment of ligand (e.g. epinephrine and norepinephrine) based activation of ADRA2A GPCR activity via detection of increasing levels of intracellular calcium. The included cell line overexpresses ADRA2A alongside endogenous high levels of the promiscuous G protein, Gα15, coupling the receptor to the calcium signaling pathway. Upon activation of ADRA2A , the resulting calcium activity can be fluorescently assayed. This stable modified cell line is provided as two vials of cryopreserved cells.
